David Blough Leads The Cardinals To Comeback Victory

Arizona Cardinals quarterback David Blough rallied the team to an 18-17 comeback victory against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday. Blough completed 11-for-22 pass attempts with 93 yards and one touchdown while rushing for another score. While under pressure and with eight minutes remaining in the third quarter, Blough started the come-from-behind victory by heaving a long TD pass to Davion Davis. With Kyler Murray out for the foreseeable future, the Cardinals are looking for someone to step up at quarterback. A win like this could put Blough in a position to be the team's starter for their upcoming Week 1 matchup vs. the Washington Commanders.
